Yes, I've been making games for 25 years, releasing my first tiny indie games in 1998.
I knew from the start that I wanted to include a built-in level editor. But I struggled a long time with figuring out a way for users who build their own levels to share them with other players. The solution was the QR code level cards, which allow Mekorama levels to be shared like you'd share a regular photo, on social media or wherever!
Computer games are Martin's love of life. He grew up playing them and after pursuing a degree and a career related to AI, he left both of these paths to become a full-time Indie game developer, and that too a great one!
Mekorama is inspired by Monument Valley, which is one of my favorite mobile games, and drop-dead gorgeous to look at. On PC I think FEZ is just a tremendous achievement, such a pleasant world to explore!
The initial development took about 2 years, and now the app and its community has been going strong for 4 more years.
I try to deliver a fun and relaxing experience, where you can also get creative with the level building blocks.
I'm terrible at animation. So I knew I could never animate Mekorama's protagonist, named B, in the traditional way. Instead, I made the little robot a real physical object, struggling to keep its balance and to put one foot in front of the other. And in the end, I think it makes it feel a lot more alive!
None of the future plans are public. So that if they fail spectacularly, as future plans often do, only I will be disappointed. But if they come to fruition, others will be happily surprised!
If you like the game, please consider paying for it! (If you can't, that's fine too, I understand.)
